You are a Creator
You might not know it, but you are part of a historic movement.
Chances are, you’re really good at something. Some of you will recognize what that thing is right away. However, for many others (myself included), it’s not always obvious what our thing is.
In this chapter, we'll learn how to identify your most profitable skills and start thinking of them through the lens of digital products.

Solving the Right Problem
Learn how to create human-centered products that solve specific problems.
Knowing your audience is critical to making human-centered digital products that people love using. But how do we know if we're solving the right problem?

Crafting Your Personality
Create a personality for your brand that resonates with your audience.
Personality attracts us to some products, repels us from others, and greatly influences our decision-making process. Your brand’s personality has the power to connect with customers on an emotional level and tell your product’s story in a more meaningful way.
In this chapter, we’ll dive into building a product personality that resonates with your audience, and we’ll see a few examples of products whose design hits all the marks of a great customer experience.

Practical Pricing Strategies
Pricing is tough, but there's a strategy to inch towards perfect pricing.
How you price your product or service is one of the most important factors customers will look at when deciding to do business with you. That said, pricing can be notoriously difficult to nail down.
In this chapter, we'll explore some practical pricing tidbits that will help you develop your own winning pricing model and stop leaving money on the table.

Education as a Feature
Product education is the unsung hero that answers questions before they're asked.
An excellent customer support strategy isn’t something you set up after launching a product or service. Instead, you should have your support system in place well ahead of that.
In this chapter, we’ll walk through how to set yourself (and your customers) up for success with key behind-the-scenes organizational tools and stellar product education.

Converting Customers With Content
Create powerful content marketing that puts a rocket booster on your products.
What if we flipped the marketing around and gave potential customers something super valuable on a regular basis before we started asking them for money? That’s where the magic of content marketing comes in.
In this chapter, we'll learn how to use content marketing to zero in on your audience and build a sales funnel towards your products.

Automations don't just save you money, they can make you money.
If you’re spending all of your time manually managing all the tasks to run a digital business, you’re not spending it innovating, creating, or improving your products. That's where automations come in.
In this chapter, we’ll take a look at optimizations and tactics you can use to grow beyond your initial limited resources and generally make your one-person operation operate like a small team.
- Automating Growth Liftoff Course 0:50

In the final chapter, we'll create a four-step flight plan for you to take your first steps towards creative entrepreneurship.
